New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday issued notices to the Prime Minisiter's Office (PMO) and the Railway Ministry on a plea challenging appointment of Vivek Sahai as Chairman of the Railway Board.

"Issue notice to the respondents (PMO, Railways, CVC, and Sahai) for August 10," a division bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Sanjiv Khanna said.

The notices were issued on a PIL filed by Suresh Tripathi, a Thane-based editor of 'Paripurn Railway Samachar', alleging that the appointment of Sahai was "illegal" and he be removed from his post.

The petition has also sought that Sahai, who is due to retire on June 30, be not granted any extension in service by the Government.
